2020-21 Catalog

Statistics (STAT)

Courses

STAT 342 Applied Linear Algebra 3 Credits

The theoretical basis for applying linear algebra in other fields, including statistics. Topics will include systems of equations, vector spaces, matrices, and linear transformations. Additional topics will include matrix factorizations (including LU, QR, eigen-decomposition, and SVD) and how they can be used in computer analysis of data sets. Some students may optionally choose to take MATH 205 as preparation for this course. Not available for credit to students who have completed MATH 241 or MATH 242.
Prerequisites: MATH 022

STAT 408 Seminar in Statistics and Probability 1-6 Credits

Intensive study of some field of statistics or probability not offered in another course. Consent of department required.

STAT 409 Seminar in Statistics and Probability 1-6 Credits

Intensive study of some field of statistics or probability not offered in another course. Consent of department required.

STAT 410 Random Processes and Applications 3 Credits

See MATH 310.

STAT 412 Advanced Applied Statistics 3 Credits

Selected advanced topics in applied statistics. Possible topics include nonparametric statistics, multivariate statistics, generalized linear model, survival analysis, time series analysis or other modern applied statistical methods with application to real world problems. Topics could vary from one semester to another depending on the interests of the faculty member and the students.
Repeat Status: Course may be repeated.

See MATH 365.

STAT 471 Topics in Statistical Learning and Computing 3 Credits

Selected advanced topics in statistical learning and computing. Possible topics include linear and nonlinear regression, applied spatial statistics, applied multivariate and longitudinal data analysis, functional data analysis, survival analysis, data analytics, statistical methods that use intensive-computing or simulations, data mining techniques, with application and interpretation of a variety of statistical methods in real world problems. Topics could vary from one semester to another depending on the interests of the faculty member and the students.
Repeat Status: Course may be repeated.

STAT 474 Statistical Practice 3 Credits

Outside university consulting practice that is led by faculty members and experienced members from companies in the region. The live consulting projects provide working examples from which students gain practical experience in statistical practice. Students use this experience to assemble a portfolio of materials that demonstrates the knowledge and skills they have gained during their time in the program. This also offers opportunities to interface with working professionals through the practical training experience. Permission of instructor required.
Repeat Status: Course may be repeated.
Prerequisites: MATH 312 and STAT 438 and STAT 434 and (STAT 465 or STAT 471)
